Our dental people

Our vision and values

We put our patients at the very heart of everything we do. We believe Oasis Dental Care should stand for:

  • Choice
  • Quality
  • Responsibilty

We seek to lead standards of care in dentistry. We do this with an open and trusting nationwide network that inspires collaboration and innovation. Ultimately, we want our patients to enjoy a relaxed and sympathetic dental experience.

We pursue constant improvement in what we do through:

  • Focussing on outcomes – we set clear goals for our people and our business to improve the dental health of our patients
  • Innovation - we are driven by what dental care should be, not what it has been
  • Collaboration – by using our UK-wide network to share knowledge and training we raise standards for all dentistry
